Provider Enrollment and Credentialing Services
Physicians/providers must credential themselves, which entails enrolling in and attesting to the Payer’s network and being authorized to deliver services to Payer’s plan participants. The credentialing process checks that a physician’s education, license, experience, certifications, affiliations, malpractice, any adverse clinical occurrences, and training fulfill the Payer’s criteria for delivering clinical care.
Physicians who are not certified and enrolled with a payor may have their payments delayed or denied. This has a negative effect on the practice’s finances. Our Payer credentialing and enrollment services are tailored to help physicians in the following areas:
- Starting a new practice or joining an existing one.
- Changing from one group of physicians to another.
- Join or associate with new organizations or practices.
